Goals galore in Montjuic, where Numancia beat Espanyol 3-4 for their first away points of the season. Nagore gave the visitors the lead early on, firing a low shot past Kameni after the defence had failed to clear Barkero's cross. Moisés Hurtado equalised on the half hour mark again after a free kick was not properly cleared, but Goiria restored the lead soon after the break, heaing quero's cross past Kameni.

Espanyol turned the scoreline around in the next twenty minutes, Jarque throwing himself at Nené's corner to head down past Juan Pablo, and Tamudo converting a penalty after the striker himself was brought down by Cisma. But with the crowd thinking that the worst had passed, Barkero levelled the scores once again with an impressive shot from outside of the area, and with the game in the third minute of injury time Bellvis cut in from the left and drove in an angled shot which somehow got past Kameni. The pressure is off Kesic, but now Márquez is in trouble!
